Varun in a few words

I am a seasoned Digital Product/UX Designer, who has deep expertise across the entire product process - discovery, strategy, concepting, and delivery.

For well over a decade I have honed my craft within some of the world's best digital agencies, working with enterprise and startups - such as Mastercard, Cambridge University, Wagamama, London Stock Exchange, Lloyds Bank, eBay, Biogen and Egon Zehnder to name a few.

Product Owner
“He combined technical knowledge with creativity to deliver impact but he also demonstrated the right amount of leadership, collaboration, and problem-solving to help us achieve a tight deadline without sacrificing an exceptional product experience. Varun is one of the most capable and proactive professionals I have ever met in my career. He is able to identify critical issues in advance and propose valid solutions for practical implementation."

Product Owner
“Working with Varun has been awesome, he bought with him strong knowledge of his trade and an unrivaled enthusiasm for the both the product and the people and he was working with. Varun's passion for design thinking and working helped not just the team he was in but also the customer's and stakeholders that he expertly engaged with to validate the designs and challenge ongoing iterations of the prototype leading the way for our development team to clearly see 'what's next'."

Product Owner
“Varun had consistently provided great results on both fronts by engaging with hands-on work where needed while working on building team & processes that would sustain the growth and ensure quality standards across the whole team. Varun has helped the team and stakeholders align on the vision by providing guidance, facilitating engaging workshops and translating inputs into actionable artifacts."
